ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) ----- October marks breast cancer awareness month and over the weekend, hundreds headed to Rock Valley College to honor those who have fought valiantly against the disease.

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the nation's largest community of fundraising events, bringing together more than a million supporters together to participate in 3 mile walks across the country.

Last year, close to 2,500 people in the Rockford community came together and helped raise more than $155,000 for research and to fight for a world that could one day be cancer-free.
